Toad style Chessmaster The RZA will be at the Chelsea Arts Center in Manhattan on Saturday to host and take part in a fast-paced, single elimination speed chess tournament.

Also participating will be 2-3 scholarship chess players from local schools. All proceeds go to benefit 9queens - a national nonprofit organization dedicated to extending the benefits of chess to under-served and under-represented populations.

I used to wreck house in Battle Chess on original Nintendo. There is no question I would get it handed to me here.

It's happening from 3-6 on Saturday. Go here for more info: Chelsea Art Museum 9Queens Knockout Invitational
